Oh my goodness! Lol you are very committed! I work in aged care...basically, I do elderly people's house work - around 3-4 houses a day. All of the bending and lifting is starting to kill me! I am cutting back some hours next week to make it easier! I can imagine you still feel like you have ages if you're planning on working that long!!
Yeh I've cut back my hours because it's killer both on and off till, but I want as much time with my baby afterwards as possible! I'm hoping they will let me have the 2 weeks before I go on leave as holiday so in reality I'd work until 38 weeks but if they don't let me it's 40 weeks
Wow, I really hope they let you take holidays! I can understand wanting to use maternity leave for when baby is here though just don't push yourself too hard!

Aldi are weird about a lot of things to be honest!

In other news my baby has flipped breech and my midwife is concerned she doesn't have room to flip back! They are also sending me for a growth scan as they are concerned over her size, so I have that on Monday

Mumma we get 10 sick days a year and they roll over each year. So next year I have 20 sick days. Those are my only paid leave days (which basically is one month of school). Out bargaining agreement allows me to take 45 school days off, but those extra 25 days are differential pay. You can apply for Family Leave to be out until 12 weeks but again you're at different pay. Our disability is only $50/day and the sub gets paid $220/day so you end up losing half or more of your paycheck.

Hey all! Can I join? I'm not technically due until September, but it's September 3rd so I could go in August, if she decides to arrive a little early.

Kittykat - oh no! That's crazy to think there no room to flip back already. Keeping everything crossed she flips back soon on her own! Do they think she is big or small?

Dobby - That's pretty rough I'm nervous about when my mat pay runs out.. I honestly don't want to return to work with a little bub! It's going to be hard. I stayed home for four years with my ds.

Savasanna - Welcome! Are you hoping to go in August? A few days early won't hurt

Big, but I don't think my midwife knows how to measure fundal height the tape was so loose I could see atleast a cm of gap between it and my belly, I could easily fit my whole hand in the gap she left and measured by!! Unless that's normal but I honestly felt like she was measuring the air around my bump more than my bump!!

Awww mumma that's tough but once you get used to working again it'll all float right back to you. Being on summer vk right now makes me so jealous of SAHM. It is sooooo much easier to keep up on housework when I haven't been at work all day. I'm just scared about sleep deprivation and working. I'm rumored to be probationary next year so I need to be on top of my game/you can't really be physically weak around this population of kids. They are like wolves and will try to dismantle your authority if they sense weakness

Kittykat - that is definitely not how my midwife measures my fundal height! Lol can you try to measure it yourself? It might make you feel better knowing the midwife was wrong, and the scan could just be a bonus for you

Dobby - I am looking forward to getting stuff done when I start leave! Right now I'm so tired from working that everything takes so much effort!

Mumma - I'd actually be happy to go a little early. This is totally silly but I don't love 9/3 as a birthday - what a bummer to have your birthday be on/around the first day back to school every year! If I were to go a week early then at least it could still be included with the summer dates. haha.

Kitty - so strange that your midwife is measuring you that way! I tried to measure my belly myself a few days ago and don't think I was doing it correctly.. It said I measured 3cm small! I know the babe is in the 52nd percentile so I feel like I shouldn't be that behind. Who knows, though. My next check in with my OB is next Friday. After that I'm getting bumped up to check ins every 2 weeks instead of 4! Crazy!

I never understand other country's school years! Here our school years start in Feb and end a few days before Christmas! The time between December and feb is summer/Christmas/end of school year holidays!

I'm also having my next appt next friday and then fortnightly ones
